The crate seems sturdy and I do appreciate that the gate opens from each side. Super easy to put together. The only problem was that it was really dirty when it arrived. The crate was covered in a really thick dust. The two halves were stacked in each other and so the white part was completely coated, but it was also in the bottom blue part as well. I had to wash the crate before I could put it together. Was not happy.
Super nice carrier, but heavier

Took a while for me to figure out how to assemble this, because the included metal screws look like they're too short, but they're the correct size - once I realized that, it was simple putting it together. It is very well made, very sturdy, and there is no worry about any of the fasteners becoming loose or breaking like there is with plastic screws. It is much heavier than most other carriers, so that is a downside. It is recommended, though.
Awesome little crate

I am very impressed with this sturdy little crate. The extra small snaps together with side clasps, which my vet was happy about about because it made it easier for her to get my cat back into into the crate. It's perfect for our 7 lb cat, but a little snug for our 9.5 lb cat.

I got my carrier and assembled it with nuts and bolts provided. It did not have the easy lock system shown in this picture. I do like the door that can open from the right or left.

I replaced two new soft sided carriers with the IRIS deluxe pet travel carrier and couldn't be happier. This morning I had to transport the cats to the vet and for once they were not able to get out of the carrier and the vet techs commented on how much they liked the carriers. I thought this was a real plus. Getting the cats in and out of the carrier is also easy - no zippers and clasps to close just a well made sturdy door as well as the total carrier.

I recommend this crate for travel. I gave it 4 stars because I wasn’t able to put it together myself, due to the screws being about the same length as the opening, but I like that the door opens in either direction, and my puppy is comfortable and safe in the crate.
Good carrier for my kitty!

Very nice carrier!
I took my kitty to neutering last day, and carried it back in this box. It is comfortable and clean, very strong.
Well, if you have to go to the vet, this is the way to go....

I don't like going to the vet, and neither does my housemate, Korra. The vet office always smells funny, and the dogs there always want to come sniff us. But this carrier has LOTS of room, so even at 15 pounds, I can sit upright. It's not too heavy for our moms to carry, either. They like the fact that the door can open either to the left or the right. We cats like the fact that we have lots of airholes! Tell your moms or dads to get this carrier! Love, Angus
Perfect for my parakeets
on Jun 1, 2018
I bought two carriers, one for each of my parakeets for travel by car. And also for something else, but I’ll explain that later. The spacing of the slots is accurate for parakeets. Then I attached plastic canvas mesh on the front of the door so they couldn’t pass through spaces on the carrier door. I cut holes in the plastic canvas for a Lexit water bottle. I wanted to keep the water dish that came with the carrier because it’s the only bowl I’ve seen with an lip around the bowl to keep the water from sloshing out. So, I cut holes in the plastic canvas for the arms of the water bowl. In the bowl, I put fresh broccoli and greens.

It was a place to catch the drips from the Lexit water bottle, but it really didn’t drip that often.
A few weeks before our trip I put them inside to play. They had a swinging bridge which I secured with plastic oval links through the carrier slots. I also added a jr. kabob, a perch, a stainless steel 5.5 cup that clamps on. I attached some raffia and curly paper with a zip tie. And I put paper on the bottom. Within the first few days they enjoyed playing inside.
On our road trip, I secured each carrier with a set of Kurgo Carrier Keeper Straps. Our trip was 10 hours one way, and then 10 hours back home a week later.
They had lots of room to move around. I felt better because it was hard plastic. It was shady inside. I did cover partially with a blanket during the heat of the day. We took their carriers out of the car at rest stops and sat them on top of picnic tables without fear they’d blow over. There was room for me to add lots of chew toys. I added the bridge because it moved with the movement of the car. They wouldn’t get thrown off of it.
Within a few hours after it arrived on our porch, we used it as a storm shelter. As tornadoes moved into our city, I put the boys into small individual cages, and then inside one carrier. Then snapped the top on. It’s easier to carry just one under ground. I hung a kindle with movies and music on the inside of the door of the carrier. I had enough room for a small snack box of millet and oats.
I added photos but they all turned sideways. Hoped this helped.… more
Using for kitens

The kittens love to play in these. I took them to the vet in them, and the vet tech made a comment about what nice carriers they are. Very happy with them!
